Chabad Combating Child Sexual Abuse In Israel

Chabad in Israel is taking new initiatives to combat the sexual abuse against children that has existed for years in the Chabad educational system.

The new program, called “And you shall guard your souls” after the Biblical commandment, is teaching children learning in Chabad institutions to be watchful of sexual abuse and to report any such abuse to the authorities without fear.

Chabad education officials are also educating teachers and administrators of the dangers of child sexual abuse, and providing them with the tools necessary to prevent and fight this taboo. The strides being taken have also included a workshop in dealing with child sexual abuse for 500 teachers in the Chabad educational system.
